This is not creating any other than a shortcut command to the pre existing cmd.exe which people can utilize just by typing cmd in thee run dialog. But for those new to programming it is a good start.

I love how so many of you rant and rave about how simple this program is.

So what? Nobody forced you to even click on this article.

The title is very clear, hopefully it didn't fool you into believing that you'll learn something to enhance your advanced programming skills.

I like it.

Having said that, what I find hilarious is that you claim to 'do' Artificial Intelligence... not sure the relevance, unless you were fishing for compliments.

Oh yes, and congrats that you 'made this when I was a little kid', you must be awesome by now (luv the BMX helmet btw).

So many trolls, so little time.

If cmd.exe and command.com is not available, that will not work, bro. Nice try, though (NO OFFENSE!).

no offense, but is typing so few lines such a big deal? it's like 20 seconds of copying+pasting or typing. plus this code lets you personalize it. i've never used batch code before and this is pretty cool for me.

Not to be degrading, but how is that different from the one you would normally use? That makes absolutely no sense.

The one in this tut, although old, is green and is completely customized based on your wants.

Trust me, if you think batch is cool, learn a new language that is actually useful like C++ or C#. Those are probably the coolest. You also have Ruby and Python which I incredibly love and Java for some cool stuff as well.

Yeah, I know that was a long time ago when I didn't know very much about programming and also that was supposed to be for schools/something that blocks the normal cmd... I have learned more programming languages and better batch programming, too... Sorry.
